The Killing
In the age of streaming services saving cable shows, "The Killing" has had nine lives. Canceled by AMC after the second season, revived for season three, only to be canceled again, Netflix swooped in and brought back the show for one final run around the block. And as you'd probably guess, it's going to be moody as hell.

The Killing
“The Killing” is a curious show with almost nine lives. A major hit out of the gate for AMC that looked like it could replicate some of the success of “Breaking Bad” or other flagship shows on the network. Like we wrote at the beginning of season 2, “the pilot episode of the show -- an eerie mix of David Fincher “Se7en” rain/gloom aesthetics and the “Twin Peaks”-like ominousness found in the Pacific Northwest -- received near universal acclaim from critics.” But the show quickly went south, dragged everything out and went a little nuts with red herrings that lead into cul de sac after cul del sac. Ratings dropped and by the end of season two the show was canceled. AMC then unkilled it, brought it back for season 3 and then canceled it again.

Oh, "The Killing." The U.S. import of the hit Scandinavian show has not gone well. First arriving in 2011, the show served up two frustrating seasons that stretched out a murder mystery, losing the interest and patience of critics and audiences, which lead to its cancellation. But it was soon revived again, with AMC and Netflix teaming up this past summer and delivering a third season that barely played to a bigger audience than the second. And once again AMC canned the show. But it seems you can't keep "The Killing" down for it has lived for yet another day.

As one of AMC’s most successful and critically acclaimed shows nears its finish just a few short episodes away, it seems another of the network’s line-up has halted mid-race. Dogged by mixed reception, cancellation, and then revival by AMC and Netflix, season three of “The Killing” promised a quality return with new supporting cast members and a resolved mystery by its end (not to mention strong reviews too). But while the drama delivered both with its recently aired finale, the efforts weren’t enough to carry the show through to a fourth season.

The big question: can AMC reclaim the fans and critics it lost after season two of "The Killing"? That's going to be the goal as the network canceled and then re-upped show, but they will still have to convince those who got frustrated as the intial mystery dragged over two seasons. But they are taking some important steps. Firstly, the network promises that this time around, everything will be resolved in twelve episodes, and secondly, they are lining up some solid talent to join the returning Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos.

Time for a TV news round-up now.....“Masters of Sex,” the upcoming Showtime series starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, looks to have bagged itself a new recurring cast-member. Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) already has established a recurring role in “Rules of Engagement” and more recently “Modern Family,” but she’s now set to do the same in "Masters of Sex" in which she’ll play the only female doctor in a male-dominated hospital, who will also serve as both a competitor and mentor for Lizzy Caplan’s character. Showtime have already given the show a 12-episode order, with it due to debut later this year on September 29th.

When it was announced last month that "The Killing" was close to returning to AMC for a third season, there was admittedly some hesitation to fully embrace the news. While the show began with promise, its second season was considered a disappointment by many. In spite of that, AMC and Fox Television Studios continues to move along with the struggling series as production on "The Killing" officially starts next month in Vancouver and, this time, they’ve announced that the case will be resolved at the end of the season.

Though it met an early demise this past summer after a lackluster second season, AMC drama “The Killing” got a second chance at life when the cable network announced they would be bringing the show back, with Netflix likely handling a share of the costs. While both Mirielle Enos and Joel Kinnaman are set to return, it seems that other members of the ensemble won’t be back for the new season.

At the end of July, AMC closed the curtain on "The Killing" after a disappointing second season that saw flagging viewership and overall criticism for an arc that routinely saw the narrative spin its wheels. But, less than a month later, word emerged that both Netflix and DirecTV came calling, looking to team up with Fox TV Studios to revive the show. Then, a few weeks ago, AMC was back in the game, with reports that they might team with Netflix to make the third season happen. And well, for fans of the show, the good news is that the show is definitely coming back.
